Vivian Webb’s varsity volleyball players struggled in their first game after October break in a non-league game against Garey High School. On Friday, October 13, the Gauls lost 0-3 with set scores of 17-25, 17-25, and 15-17. Although the score did not favor VWS, our players made many powerful hits against Garey’s strong players and had an effective defense team. “I think we did well on communication last Friday comparing to many other days, but because Garey was a decent team, it made sense for them to win,” said Sara Hagiwara, a sophomore and first-year varsity player. “Since our team has a tendency to go up and down, I think we started off rather strong but then things went a little bit rocky. Because we made mistakes and got mad at ourselves for it, it affects the whole team during the game, therefore we should learn to trust ourselves as well as our teammates more.” —Ivy Liu '19
Amara Berry ’12 truly embodies what it means to think boldly, mindfully and creatively.

An opportunity to pick the brain of award-winning author John Scalzi '87, is not one you want to miss. Discussing topics ranging from what exactly defines a burrito to what projects he currently has in production, there's never a dull moment with Scalzi.
